Cypress 7 Sunflowers
I started a series of yellow fields and sunflowers during the lockdown in March. Sunflowers are joyful and hopeful and I was hopeful that we’d stay healthy and safe. I am still hopeful. This piece is inspired by a memory of a field in South West France. I darkened the sky and pushed the color to energize the flowers…as if they needed my help.
